Here's another sharp operator to add to the list of usual suspects in the line-up for brunch in E London. We've already pulled in The Book Club and The Boundary Cafe for questioning here; now it's the turn of The Breakfast Club in Hoxton.
"She took me in and made me breakfast"
On Rufus Street, between Hoxton Square and Old Street, The Breakfast Club is a light, bright, modern post-industrial space.  It is very busy, full of young fashionistas styled to match the artfully distressed walls and quirky fittings.  The slick service is as up-to-the-minute as the side-ponies that have already sashayed over from London Fashion Week.
TBC gets all the important things right, with excellent coffee, a zingy bloody mary, and an eclectic menu: mounds of pancakes drip with maple syrup, bagels bulge with smoked salmon, perfect poached eggs quiver on brown toast, huevos rancheros do battle with the Full Monty breakfast. For those who only emerge when daylight fades, there is a late breakfast menu starting at 5:00 in the evening.  But it's very popular, so get here fashionably early.

  1. I love the Breakfast Club, although the branch in Angel is still my favourite.
